You are misunderstooding "natural born citizen"

in response to reader comment: Born in the USA

You do not need 2 parents to be a "natural born citizen." You have been listening to Ted Cruz and Fox News too much. The U.S. Congress already passed a bill about "natural born citizen" stating that if you are born in the United States, you are a US citizen. I don't like it, but that's how it is. Obama is a US citizen because he is born in Hawaii. We have actual FACTS and DATA about this already. And I looked at the Acticle Section you were referring to. The US Congress did not get rid of that Acticle in the Constitution, but it is too vague to implement into law; therefore, they came up with if you are born in the United States, you are a US citizen. There is nothing you or I can do to change it, but it needs to be debated again so we don't have people just having babies in the United States and leaving.
